    Im looing at a questionare I have to fill out for immunologist visit tommorrow and one question is the documentation of tick ites throughout my life.

    Well I have grown up with ticks all my life. I cant remember a year that I havent been bitten. It was just part of life as we knew it. Like being bitten by mosquitoes. It was always a non event. We just pluck the buggers off and flushed or otherwise dispossed of them,washed our hand and went on. We never went to the doctor to document it or anything.

    Has anyone else been bitten as much as me. I am a tick magnet I must confess. Dont know why? Same with flees. If there is one in the room it finds me.

    I have been bitten by no less than 20 ticks this summer alone!! NO I NOT KIDDING!!! We have alot of ticks here.

    I currently have an active lyme disease going on. Im really sick.Literaly I feel like Im dying. Its horrible. Thats why Im going to the immunologist tommorrow. He is a Lyme Literate specalist. Thank God!!
    I cant wait to find out what else he finds in my blood.
    I think he does the full gamet of blood work like the FCC does.

    I'll let you know what happens.

    Sorry that you are feeling so badly! Amazing that you have
    received so many tick bites in such a short period of time
    Are you in brush alot?? Do you have animals that get them
    also?? My adult Daughter has Lyme for about 10 plus yrs.
    She is doing well but the disease can be very debilatat-
    ing as you know. Besides the Medical attention, it seems
    that the problem demands an enviromental evaluation for
    you in order to escape being a continuous victim.

    Keep us posted daily on your situation.
    Concerningly,
